Very excited to be heading down to Nashville with my band this December for a special one night only stripped down/acoustic performance. Tickets on sale this Friday & stay tuned for an additional exclusive ticket package announcement. pic.twitter.com/4tK4LM1KAJ
It has come to my attention that, despite the cancelling of the Creation Entertainment event in Secaucus, NJ, many of you still have plans to be in the area November 17 & 18 as you already had non refundable plane and hotel reservations. We would like to invite you to join us for some fan hosted event. EMAIL ME and we will make sure to include you in all our plans.
Duchovniacs Headquarters OPEN HOUSE – stop by our house, Just 5-minute Uber from Secaucus. Food, Drinks and Fan Chatting!
Saturday November 17
NOON – Improv Comedy Workshop – Same workshop we will be offering in Orlando next weekend and previously offered at the Montreal Comic Con in July this year. Regularly Priced $40. RSVP and pay just $10. Led by Walt Frasier.
3pm – Interactive Improvised Musical Comedy Show – starring Walt & Laurice Frasier. Regularly priced $25. RSVP for FREE tickets. There is a one drink minimum and they have a small food menu. The club is a 5 minute walk to just about every Broadway Show, Times Square, and Central Park/Columbus Circle.
4:30-7:30pm Karaoke Party- Less than 100 yards from our comedy club, this is a popular event when we have friends in town. This Korean style Karaoke club gives each group a private room. There is a bar (NO OUTSIDE DRINKS) but we can order food – usually great pizza or Chinese but plenty of options. Ask Stephanie about vegan options in the neighborhood. The Saturday night rate is $8/hour per person but during the day there is a flat fee of about $14pp. NO additional purchase required but the drinks are very reasonably priced for Manhattan. This past April we had 40ppl in their largest room. We often have about 8-10ppl.
FYI Secaucus is a mere 30 minute train/bus ride to midtown Manhattan. If you take an uber to the Secaucus Train station, you are just one stop out of Penn Station. Most of those hotels have a shuttle to the train as well. On a nice day, Hoboken NJ can be fun as well as the Ferry to the City from Weehawken. Also that area where the convention was to be held – Harmon Meadows – is home to a great movie theater and a number of restaurants. My fave is a whole in the wall Sushi Joint. Much better than expected. There is also a Walmart and LA Fitness (My Gym) right next to the convention hotel.
While Laurice and Joe talked about the poster, I noticed the comic. T
he cover art alone grabbed my attention. The brilliance of comics, their entire nature is to sell themselves off the shelf with eye catching art.
Upon seeing I had interest, Joe told us the premise. I was immediately sold.
To set up this book, let us go back to September 10, 1993, The X-Files Pilot. We see Agent Dana Scully in Section Chief Blevin’s office. When asked if she is familiar with Agent Fox Mulder, Scully replies, “By reputation only… he wrote a monograph on serial killers and the occult that helped catch Monte Propps back in 1988…”
Chris Carter never again mentions Monty Propps in 25 years of The X-Files.
Joe Harris starts this new graphic novel – after a brief scene showing a terror plot unfolding in 1999 seven days before THE Millennium- with Mulder at the parole hearing for Monte Propps. Immediately my mind returns again to season one images of John Barnett trial from 1989. Another pre X-Files case that would later haunt Mulder as an X-File.
SIDE BAR – I always loved those early episodes showing Mulder and Scully dealing with their past lives together.
Their are some very harrowing, creepy images of how Monte Propps victims perished. A series of drowning deaths – with supernatural / demonic – causes – these deaths were deemed to be indirectly caused by Propps, but lacked evidence to be considered outright murders.
Frank Black was their too. He is hearing voices, seeing visions. His gifts are a curse for sure.
Mulder and Frank loosely team up to uncover who/what did not let Propps survive his first night of freedom.
This book is compelling me to return and binge the original series.
We never see Scully but we hear Mulder checking in, and leaves Franks asking “… not to mention whatever happened back there between me and Lucy to my partner of the TRUE fiery red hair and inner fury…”
Did Mulder just call Scully an angry woman?
Either way, this is an amazing tale of a warrior fighting past his prime, while dealing with his own demons.
Celebrities are good at everything, especially giving advice to non-celebrities. Enjoy ‘Dear Famous People’ featuring life coaches David Duchovny, Sharon Stone, Jeff Daniels, Wyatt Cenac, Helen Hunt, Henry Winkler, and Simon Pegg.

Born and raised in New York City, Duchovny attended Princeton University (where he played one season as shooting guard on the school’s basketball team), received his Masters Degree in English Literature from Yale and was on the road to earning his Ph.D. when he caught the acting bug.
Subsequently, Duchovny emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. The star of Fox Television’s monster hit “The X-Files,” David was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, he was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his highlyacclaimed and some say risqué appearances on THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW. In January 1997, David won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He has been nominated for a total of three Golden Globes, three Screen Actors Guild and a TV Critic’s Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. The press and the public both agree that Duchovny brings a fierce intellect, a quiet intensity and an acerbic wit to his roles on both the small screen and the silver screen.
Since THE X-FILES debuted, millions and millions of self-proclaimed “X-Philes” spent their Sunday nights wide-eyed in anticipation as their hero, the brilliant and sullen FBI agent Fox Mulder, explored cases deemed unbelievable or unsolvable by the Bureau. Duchovny’s remarkable performance on THE X-FILES earned him the title of “Zeitgeist Icon” by Laura Jacobs in The New Republic and “the first Internet sex symbol with hair” by Maureen Dowd in The New York Times.
FOX and 1013 Productions gave us 200+ hours of original footage for millions of fans worldwide. But the fans took it so much farther. Here are just a few of my fave moments from the last 3 years of international adventures…. #duchovniacs
25 years ago today The X-files appeared on our televisions. It was 1993 and and Mulder and Scully have definitely made an impact on my life. Thank you David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Chris Carter, Mitch Pileggi and all involved in the series for giving us 25 great years. Special thanks to all Phile and Duchovniac friends that helped me write the new song parody. JOY TO THE WORLD INDEED
